Another popular use for this kind of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that makes sure that an email address will not be spoofed and that individuals will not get unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains information about the mail server where your electronic messages come from and serves as confirmation that it is a trusted one. Since there are no standards concerning the content of such a record, you could also include any other info also.
